Tim,

Who owns "Babe?" Is Babe abandoned? From what I can gather, the Autoboggan was the work horse of snow mobiles, could pull a lot of weight and did not get stuck in deep snow.

Babe restored would be a nice piece to add to an Arctic Museum.

Everything is abandoned at the True Love Camp* which celebrated it's 50th anniversary. I don't know when the research facility finally closed the doors but like most things they are just left behind. Hunters from Grise Fiord use it as a stopover. If you can figure a way to get it home **Bob it's all yours!!
